TAKE ROOT Magazine takes you on a journey to local gardens and farms where the freshest ingredients arrive at nearby farmers’ markets, your family’s pantry and in the kitchens of some of your favorite restaurants and catering services. TAKE ROOT’s mission is to tell the stories behind local farms, food and sustainable living in the Willamette Valley and throughout all of Oregon. The beautiful “feel good” pictures and stories that captivate our audience with every page they turn. The stories and articles introduce our food providers so that our readers can learn more about what they do in growing and providing fresh and healthy foods. The narratives encourage readers to eat local and to thrive. We bring awareness for the initiative of living green and promoting a healthy environment for families and the future of our children. We believe it all begins with healthy soil and seeds from farms to tables.
The team at TAKE ROOT understands the importance of knowing where food comes from. We know that soil is the richest gift and the beginning of sustainable living. We cherish bees and how vital they are to our food system. We honor farmers who sow the soil for the harvest; our ranchers, fisherman and poultry farmers, who supply our meat to our finest restaurants, delis and our home barbecues and the chefs and artisans who use our local harvest and create culinary food and beverage creations that delight our senses.
